So our little Monkey girl is 5 months old today! WOW!! She has started eating real baby food, and so far has tried peas, bananas, and sweet potatoes, she loves them all! She is such a great eater! She is still throwing up. Who knows when it will stop. It seems to be less and less as the weeks go by. Hopefully by next month it will be done with. I put her on the scale with me last week and she was exactly 15 pounds! She loves her bouncer and to sit in the high chair or bumbo with toys. She is becoming more interested in TV and enjoys Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! She is also "reaching" for Brad all the time!(Its more of a lean) She doesnt do it to me that often! She also gives kisses! You have to really have her attention, and its mostly just slober all over your face, but she tries!! She is doing this new thing with her bottom lip, she kinda sucks it in and does a raspberry. Her naps are getting shorter, and fewer. She is still such a happy baby and can keep herself entertained for a long time! Im in shock that she is this big so fast! We love you Ellie, and we love having you in our family!! :)

Brad got free tickets to Cornbelly's at work last week so we went on Saturday. We had a great time even though it was SOO hot!! Its so fun for the kids! They had these way cool bouncy pillows I have never seen before, a cute princess land, corn mazes and too much more to name! There was 1 VERY interesting thing there! It was called "The Creature" We walked up to it and didnt think much of it, it was this MASSIVE inflatable bug looking thing (I didnt get a picture) and they said it was fine to take the stroller in, mistake! It was this dark maze, both the girls were freaking out, Brad is claustrophobic and wanted to turn around but there were a million people behind us! I could barely push the stroller through, then we get to the big opening thats supposed to be the things belly, and this way loud noise starts going off (Ellie was sleeping before this) All 3 girls start screaming bloody murder and crying! It was so funny! Then we couldnt figure out how to get out of the stupid thing!! Oh, it was hillarious! So other than that the girls loved everything about the place!

I am so happy that Fall is finally here! Im so sick of the heat and cant wait for the day to come where I can turn on the fireplace! Brinley has had 2 field trips this month, one to the Tracy Aviary and then the pumpkin patch. The girls got to pick a pumpkin and push it around in a kid size wheel barrow which they thought was just great! Fall also means the witches are out at Gardner Village! The girls (and I) love to go there at least 2 or 3 times before they go away for the year! Kensi has been off track for the last 2 weeks and goes back on Monday. She is so excited, and so am I! Her and Brinley have been fighting a lot lately and she is going stir crazy! Ellie Mae is just happy as ever, she loves to play with toys and has just figured out how to make herself bounce in her jumper. She is already 4 1/2 months. She smiles nonstop and is such a joy to have!! She has moved onto oatmeal and loves it so much. I love that she is a good eater! She is so close to cutting her first 2 teeth! They are the bottom middle and I can see them! She is barely even fussy about it either. Both of the other girls were horrible teethers so Im happy that she is happy!
